In this episode we sat down with Susanne le Boutillier and James Brown, who gave us a ride and a half! We covered everything from expectations in relationships, to the cost of business, and the link between profit and people.
Many gold nuggets were shared in this wonderful conversation, and we urge you to sit and listen closely to the wisdom within.
11:47 - Dealing with humans means dealing with people with changing expectations
13:33 - Going beneath the surface to have better relationships
15:07 - The opposite of 6 star connection in a hotel experience
19:03 - The triple win in Business
21:28 - How people use perception management to cheat at ‘making a difference’
22:27 - Accreditations build trust
28:52 - Where differences lie between profit and people focus
38:10 - How hard is it for a ‘start up’ or cash poor biz to be purpose driven?
Susanne describes the ripples we make in the community as being our responsibility to watch and manage.
What a pebble she dropped on us after James had explained “the Triple Win”!
Sit back and enjoy :)
